On Day 19 of our Round The World Trip with Star Alliance, we had a morning fika (Swedish coffee break), and enjoyed some seriously delicious cinnamon buns. After visiting the Vasa Museum in Stockholm, we then went to a garden restaurant and I had and incredibly delicious shrimp salad. It was a relaxing and another wonderful day visiting Stockholm, Sweden.
1:00 Fika at Valhallabageriet Bakery – There’s a term in Sweden that’s called fika, which means to have a coffee break. And not only does it just mean to have a coffee, but it also has is a deep part of Swedish culture. So to begin the day, Ying and I headed over to a bakery called Valhallabageriet Bakery to have a fika, and I bought a cinnamon bun, a cardamom bun, and a coffee. We arrived pretty early, so the bakery was still nice and quiet and located in a beautiful area of town. The cinnamon bun and cardamom bun were easily the best I’ve ever had. I’m not a huge baked good lover or a sweets lover, but these were on the next level. It was a very successful fika in Stockholm. Total price – 74 SEK ($8.60)
5:18 Vasa Museum – 130 SEK ($15.12) per person – Next we walked over to the Vasa Museum, which is one of the most famous museums in Stockholm that’s home to a war ship that sunk just off the coast of Stockholm. The ship was in near perfect condition and it was salvaged and is now within the Vasa Museum. It was very interesting to see. Also within that area there are numbers other Stockholm attractions, museums, and entertainment.
7:06 Blå Porten Restaurant and Cafe – For lunch we walked over to a restaurant called Blå Porten Restaurant and Cafe, which was just around the corner from the museum we visited. To begin with the restaurant is in an absolutely beautiful setting, within a garden and courtyard. You walk in the restaurant and it’s kind of cafeteria style, where you walk through the line, order the Swedish food you’d like, and then pay before finding a seat. For Ying and I, we ordered a plate of lamb meatballs, and then a Swedish styles shrimp salad. The lamb meatballs were wonderful, but the highlight of lunch was the shrimp salad which was incredibly good. The shrimp were so sweet and stringy that they almost tasted like crab. Total price – 314 SEK ($36.52)
12:40 Boat to Slussen Pier – 25 SEK ($2.91) per person – One of the best ways to get around Stockholm is by taking the ferry. The views are fantastic!
17:37 Dinner at Björk Bar & Grill – After walking all the way home and getting some wonderful views of Stockholm, and also waiting out a rain storm, we headed back to our hotel, and had dinner at the Björk Bar & Grill. I ordered some more dill cured salmon, and also one of my favorite Swedish dishes, toast skagen. I didn’t pay for this meal, but each dish cost about 120 – 170 SEK ($13.95 – $19.77).
It was an amazing final day in Stockholm, and I especially enjoyed the shrimp salad at Blå Porten Restaurant. Stay tuned for the next day when we fly from Stockholm to Barcelona!
